EpigeneSwiss Meeting, 29-31.05 2017 – Weggis (LU) – deadline 01.05.2017

After last year’s successful kick-off meeting, the EpiGeneSwiss meeting will take place again in Weggis, Switzerland. 

This year we have added one day in addition to accommodate more topics and more talks that will be chosen from the abstracts, and to enhance interactions and networking. The meeting is open to EpiGeneSwiss members and non-member labs.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Weggis.

Two excellent keynote speakers :  

Prof. Maria Elena Torres-Padilla (Institute of Epigenetics and Stem Cells, Helmholtz Center Munich, Germany) and 
Prof. Denis Duboule (Laboratory of Developmental Genomics, EPFL and University of Geneva, Switzerland) 

… will present their recent results, and many more additional talks will be selected from the abstracts.
